Hello, this is my first post, and I plan on staying with this forum for a very long time. Lets say I want to game on Windows 7. As of right now, I am running a Rig with 1.5GB RAM, an Intel Celeron 1.6GHz, and an Integrated Intel card. I plan on getting a new ATi 4670 or a Nvidia 9800GT in the Mail sometime in the next month, and as of right now, I am shopping for a new CPU. The CPU I want to get is an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield 2.83GHz 12MB L2 Cache LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor
. Would this be good enough to run the games I like to play?
Battlefield 2, Combat Arms, IL2 Sturmovik, Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, Halo 2, Half Life 2, Garrys Mod, Left 4 Dead, CSS, DoD:S, TF2, etc?
Right now Im running an Compaq SR5210NX, and I really want to transform this into a Gaming rig instead of an Entertainment system.
